Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a review summarises the known effects of forages, animal fats or marine oils on bovine milk fat secretion and composition and the efficiency of the transfer of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from diet to milk is reviewed.

TL;DR: In this article, the transesterification of beef tallow and methanol is affected by many factors, such as free fatty acid (FFA), catalyst, free fatty acids, and water.
Abstract: Transesterification of beef tallow and methanol is affected by many factors. Catalyst, free fatty acids, and water in beef tallow, and reaction time were investigated. Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was a more effective catalyst than sodium methoxide (NaMeO). NaOH and NaMeO reached their maximum activities at 0.3% and 0.5%, w/w of beef tallow, respectively. The presence of water had more negative effect on transesterification than did the presence of free fatty acids (FFA). For best results, the water content of beef tallow should be kept not beyond 0.06%, w/w. FFA content of beef tallow should be kept below 0.5%, w/w. The transesterification of beef tallow was very slow in the first minute. The production of beef tallow methyl esters (BTME) was complete after about 15 min. There were still some mono- and diglycerides in the BTME phase after the reaction was finished.

TL;DR: In this article, an attempt has been made to use waste tallow as low cost sustainable potential feed stock for biodiesel production and the effect of various process parameters such as amount of catalyst, temperature and time on biodiesel consumption was investigated.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Two trials ascertained whether feeding fatty acids as preformed calcium soaps would permit normal digestibility of fiber without reducing availabilities of fatty acids or energy and found that tallow fatty acids markedly reduced Digestibility of dry matter and fiber in the rumen.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: It is suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids produce lower abdominal fat deposition than saturated or monounsaturated fatty acid, whereas polyuns saturated fatty acids were higher in muscle fat.
